A lot of collisions happen when people are rushing to get home. Transport Canada’s National Collision Database included information from about 1.5 million collisions that occurred across Canada between 1999 and 2008. The hours between 3 and 6 pm had the highest number of collisions of any other three hour time period, with 25% of the daily total. The morning commute, on the other hand, came in fifth, with only 12% of collisions occurring between 6 and 9 am. Friday, although generally a good day for most of us, had the highest number of collisions, while the greatest amount of fatalities occurred on Saturday.
So, next Monday morning, cheer up! Odds are you won’t get into an accident.
